1940 Olivetti Studio 42 Serial # 523222 1940 Olivetti Studio 42 typewriter, Serial # 523222 Massimo Martelancz's 1940 Olivetti Studio 42 typewriter. 2021-02-12 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Massimo Martelancz: 1940 Olivetti Studio 42 Serial # 523222 I really love the colored Olivetti typewriters and so when I found this specimen I could not resist and I bought it even though I already owned one of the same color. It comes from 1940 and compared to the same model of 1946 (see last image - this specimen is on the left side) they appear identical except for two minor differences, as the lack of the logo "Studio 42" as for all those produced until the Second World War, and the shape of the tape color change lever.

I have been an Italian typewriter collector for many many years. At that time, I loved very old typewriters from late 1800s to early 1900s. After a break of a few years I returned to collect typewriters but no longer so old, I prefer now the design of the 40's, 50's and 60's. Yes, I am an affectionate collector of Olivetti, of course, but I'm attracted to all the other brands from that period, not just Italian.
